From my Christmas Stocking....

So, I'm finally getting around to showing y'all what I got in my stocking.  I totally forgot to bring some of the stuff in to take a better pic, so the first one I'm posting is the one I took the day of Christmas with my iPhone.  Of course, I picked everything out and there was also some candy, but this was more important at the time.  :D  SO....I'm kinda finding pics off the internet to show what each item looks like up close. 

EOS Lip Balm in Honeysuckle Honeydew: LOVE this balm, but not overly in love with this scent.  I prefer my Summer Fruit one which stays on my desk.  This one will stay on my night stand.  I believe I got this at Walgreens.

LA Colors blush in Pink Blush (BSB332):  I got this at Dollar Tree.  I'd never heard of this brand until I saw some YT vids from EleanorWhoLaughsAlot.  I really like this color and a little goes a long way.  

Maybelline Falsies Mascara in Blackest Black:  I really like this mascara.  I kinda wish I'd tried this BEFORE I purchased my ELF eyelash curler, but I can still use them both.  With this I DO NOT need to curl my lashes at all.  Not that I don't have like 15 different mascara's, but hey I like it.  Most of them were free from Sephora for redeeming 100 points.  I got this at Walgreens & it was cheaper than anywhere else at the time.

I think the one I have is called Crystal.

LA Colors Brilliant Shine Glitter Gloss:  Another one from Dollar Tree.  I've not tried this yet, but thought it was cute.  It has no "name", but I just opened it & it smells like bubble gum!  WOOT!!

LA Colors Shimmering Loose Eyeshadow with brush in Snow White(BES400) & in Black Pearl(BES405):  Dollar Tree again!  I haven't opened the white one, but the black I have.  It's kinda like those other mineral like drugstore eyeshadows with the brush.....VERY MESSY.  I purchased some small containers from Wal-Mart today to "depot" these for easier use.  The brushes on these are beyond crappy, the product goes everywhere, and it's just horrible.  I'm hoping to like them once I put them in small jars.

ELF 2 in 1 conditioning gloss in Plumtastic:  This is normally $3, and I found it at Dollar Tree.  I threw it in the basket.  I haven't tried it yet, but figured for $1, it's still better than $3.  Really, I just wanted the color.  The reviews on it are mixed as the color is separate from the clear gloss.  I'm sure I'll let y'all know what I think when I do try it.

Maybelline Green Coverstick Concealer:  I occasionally have some redness and green is supposed to counteract redness.  This works, though I have to use it under liquid foundation.  I got this at Walgreens.

ELF Minty lip Gloss in San Diego(reddish color) & Los Angeles(pink):  Another $3 product I found at Dollar Tree.  My sister picked this up at Target in TN for $3 and I believe she got Boston.  She LOVED it.  I am in love with these too.  I will have to get more and will definitely check Dollar Tree before I check Target.  It starts out minty and tingly then tastes kinda sweet (and not minty) later.

L'Oreal Extra-Intense liquid pencil eyeliner in Plum:  I blogged that this is a recent fav & I found this too at Dollar Tree.  I since found out this shade is discontinued & went back to Dollar Tree to find it with no luck.  I'll have to try another few stores around here.  This eyeliner is like a soft creme in a pencil & the purple I'm totally in LOVE with.  I'd never used purple eyeliner before this & now I'm hooked.  I'm wearing my ELF Creme Eyeliner in purple right now with this on my waterline.

Lastly we have NYC nail polishes....I'll post a pic below because I have a few & don't want to use individual pics for each shade.  I haven't tried these yet because I'm waiting on my Zoya stuff to come in.  I can tell you that the pic below has one shade, Big Money Frost #118, that was picked up at a later date with some Pure Ice polishes and I totally forgot I didn't get them with my Christmas stuff. Anywho, we have....Purple Pizzazz Frost #133, French Tip White #134, Empire State Blue #140, the green color, and White Lights Glitter #101A.  I am excited to get to try these and once I do, I'll post swatches and stuffs.  These were purchased at Wal-Mart for like $0.94 which is a lil bit less than ELF.  Not to mention there's more shades than ELF has. 

The pic above was taken with my cam, sorry for the flash.  I may do a blog/pic post of all of my nail polishes once my Zoya stuff comes in.

Overall, I'm happy with the things I picked out & really shocked at how much I like most of it.  Especially since all but 3 items were $1.00 or less.  I forgot to mention the toe separaters(sp?) from the Target dollar bin, and the hat/headband things from Wal-Mart that were like $1.00 or $1.50.
